Welcome to JQ Hypnosis | New York City Hypnotherapy

Let’s try something different

Update: Due to Covid-19 JQ Hypnosis is now online.

We have started offering a very limited amount of in-person sessions at our Midtown Manhattan suite and Nyack office. We hope to increase this come the Spring. Our Chelsea and Flatiron offices have unfortunately closed. Outdoor walk and talk sessions will continue for anyone wishing to brave the elements.

We will continue to monitor the situation and note any changes on this site.

Have a suggestion for a recording you’d like to hear?

Taking care of ourselves, our relationships and our bodies can easily fall to the bottom of our to do list. There never seems to be the time to give our attention to what matters most and before long we can find ourselves stuck in a life we aren’t fully enjoying. We may find ourselves denying what we want, telling ourselves it doesn’t matter. That we are happy… enough.

For most people hypnosis is not the first option! The majority of our clients have tried for a long time on their own. They have often tried traditional therapy, medication or meditation but nothing has really worked. They are exhausted and approaching burnout and just want to feel good. Hypnosis is all about feeling good, feeling free, feeling loved. It’s about working with you, not against you. But don’t think that means you’re not doing the work. Far from it. It just doesn’t feel as hard when you know how to ask your brain the right way and you have someone there with you that sees the very best in you, showing you how.

With our help you will find exactly what you need to make the changes you want in your life. Right now. With our help you will learn how to ask your subconscious for what you deeply want, and get it. This isn’t selfish. The better we feel about ourselves, our own lives, and what we want to feel fulfilled, the greater our capacity to give to others.

You can read more about our specific areas of expertise such as relationships, burnout or big life questions or explore other hypnosis, coaching or meditation specialisms by scrolling back up to the menu bar. Below you will see our “in the press” section for some helpful articles we have written.

We offer LGBTQIAA affirming and ADA accessible sessions in our beautiful tranquil rooms in Midtown (Grand Central), Flatiron and Chelsea. Sessions also work really well online.

How we spend our days is how we spend our lives

Siobhan Harper-Nunes  (Founder of Shakti Women)



I am a woman passionately committed to personal and professional growth. I have tried many coaches, counsellors and therapists in the past to support me in my journey towards deeper understanding and acceptance of my past. I can honestly say, hand on heart, that working with Joanne dramatically accelerated my personal awareness and that impacted enormously on the way I relate to a very particular other in my life. This increased and deepened the love I have for myself and my family.

Within minutes of our first session, I knew I could trust Joanne completely and after just one session I felt more relaxed than I had been in a long time. Joanne knows her stuff, and she listens intently. I love her balanced approach that seeks solutions not simply navel gazing. I also love the peace and tranquillity that follows the hypnosis. I highly recommend this woman.


I must say that Joanne has been a bit of a life saver and helped me with her hypnosis skills in a very sensitive and thoughtful way. Her mesmerizing voice could send a glass eye to sleep!

She is very knowledgeable with deep issues, especially those of relationship and of a sexual nature.

She has a mix of skills that she somehow brings to the session all at once and as a client I felt I had complete trust in her ability. I don’t know how she has come to know so much.

Highly recommended.
